Weird & Wacky Floral Card!

May 31st 2014

The last day of our May "Flowers" challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog - I've made a crazy shaped card! At my local stamp group we played around with some old templates from an Australian Company called Amazing Creations - Weird & Wacky Card & Envelope Templates - seems they are still available click here!

The photo above shows the card fold better then the picture below - the picture below shows the card sitting on the matching envelope I made for it as well - a wacky shaped envelope - don't know how the mail sorting machine would handle it LOL!!!!

Be Filled With Joy...

May 29th 2014

Time for my column over at the Unruly Paperarts Site - our May theme has been "Fabric Frenzy" - I love to create with fabric and paper so if you pop over you can see my full fabric hanging along with instructions on how to make it!!

Digital stamp images are from Vera Lane Studio Etsy Store - the best cute & quirky designs to create with - I couldn't resist making a hanging with this little fairy!

Patterned digital papers used on the fabric are from Gecko Galz.

I would love you to pop over and leave a comment at the Unruly Site!

Claire has a great "concept" going on at her Jellypark FB Group - images in exchange for using them to make cards for children suffering illnesses in the UK - what a great idea. This is my first card which will be heading overseas to a young boy to help cheer him up! I'm working on my next card now!

Button Bonanza....

May 8th 2014

I'm very lucky this week to be a Guest Designer at the Little Miss Muffet Challenges Blog with their great "Button Bonanza" themed challenge - a perfect challenge for me!

I've used this cute gal "Tillie" on my button inspired card. Tillie has been coloured with Copic Markers and I've used lots of button patterned paper layers all sewn with my sewing machine. Of course I've added real buttons too which I sewed onto some little fabric rosettes or "yo-yos" as I call them. Just couldn't resist adding a scissor charm and my most favourite stuff - muslin!!

Button themed digital papers are from a set from the Old Owl Press Etsy Store - perfect for this theme!
Look forward to all the creations for this challenge!

The Sailing Pineapple!

May 7th 2014

A brand new challenge blog to coincide with Vikki's new "The Sailing Pineapple Store" opened on Etsy! Click here to see all the details of the new challenge plus a DT Call!!

The very first challenge is "Spring Birthday" and we want to see you use green, blue, pink & green on your creation - there is a fabulous freebie at the blog which I have used on both my creations for the challenge - a beautiful flower background image!

Vikki is the former owner of Queen Kat Designs (which has now closed) - she now has her own range of digis/svg files for sale in her Etsy Store - new designs being added all the time!!

For my card I printed the image on digital papers from Gecko Galz and did a bit of paper tole style cutting and mounting and my tag has had the flower background recoloured in green and printed directly onto my tag and I couldn't resist adding the little lizard also from The Sailing Pineapple!
